Pets are great

We're sad right now. About 3 days ago Abbi's guinea pig, Rosie, stopped eating and drinking. We held her tonight as she died.

She was about 6 years old so we know she lived a long life, but we're still so sad.

We still have Kyra's pig, Sam, but Rosie was our first and she was a cutie--very sweet and pretty calm. Sam is hyper and rowdy. Two distinct personalities, for sure.

We'll miss you Rosie.

She's on the left.

Sorry to hear that a beloved friend has died Abbi. Our pets add so much to our lives.

Rosie looked a lot like our guinea pig, Skittles. He died a few years back in the same manner. Sounds like they both lived a good long life though. So sorry for your loss. I LOVE the piggies! And you guys!

Oh wow, our Guinea died a month ago and she did the same thing, stopped eating and drinking. My dd knew she was going to die the night it happened, she sensed it. We still miss our Caramel and the kids want to get another guinea pig.
